Today I realized that two of my views on life conflicted with one other. On one hand I believe that that everything happens for a reason, but on the other I believe that our fate is not determined. I want to know what you guys think about this. Also do you have conflicting views on life?

I also believe that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes we may be upset and not understand why. But i just feel that everything happens for a reason. And eventually we will figure out what that reason is. As for fate i really dont know what i believe about it. I dont think i really believe that our fate is determined. I guess in a way they can both be considered the same thing.

Both of you make very good points. I guess I should just review my beliefs more. Maybe the answer will hit me suddenly.

I'm sure I do have conflicting views on life. You know why I'm sure? Because after reading your two conflicting views, I realized that I agree with both of those. It is hard to determine what you truly believe in life, and sometimes you need to take time to just sit down, without any distractions, and actually think about what you believe. Don't do it while you are driving. Do it when you can sit and have absolutely nothing else to think about. Good luck!
